A few weeks ago I had an incident (a wrongful accusation) that made me really angry. And I mean seriously angry. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And every time I revisited the incident (in my mind) it came back in Technicolor. I wrote letters (in my mind). Angry letters. Sad letters. Letters of frustration.
They didn’t help.
And guess who suffered? The person who had “done me wrong”? Nope! I did. And my immune system suffered too. Continue reading “Anger, Immune System and Psoriasis (BLOG #20)”
I had a choice with this most recent flare–freak out, get depressed, hide, feel helpless and hopeless. And, in truth, I did have some moments of all of these less than stellar emotions.
BUT, there was this part of me that kept saying “use this flare for some experimentation”. Continue reading “What I learned from this flare (BLOG #19)”
I get quite a few letters from psoriasis sufferers who are starting the Protocol. Some are desperate. Some are worried. Some are afraid. They want advice.
This got me thinking about three very important parts of the protocol that don’t involve the actual 4 parts.
They are: Continue reading “3 ESSENTIAL TIPS when using our Protocol (BLOG #16)”
I needed some time away from social media. The book (now entitled “Make Your Bed”) is finished and the next step is to find a great literary agent (who likes quirky spiritual stuff:) This is a whole different kind of writing–putting together a package with synopsis, bio, marketing, etc.
And while I was letting myself get stressed about all manner of things, I also got sloppy with the protocol Continue reading “Back after a “time out”! (BLOG #13)”
2014 was the first time my dog, Lucky, saved my life. I was almost ready to give up. My skin was worse than it had ever been and the itching was driving me mad. Suicide was looking like an attractive option. Continue reading “HELP! (BLOG #12)”
Happiness is a sunny Saturday on Commercial Drive in Vancouver.
I was reading this article about a nurse who worked with elderly patients who were terminal. She found that they had five recurring regrets. But the one that came up the most often Continue reading “Happiness….a Choice (BLOG #10)”
Remember last week’s photo? Dated August 21, 2014? My skin was covered with masses of bright red spots and plaques? Diagnosis=severe psoriasis.
This drawing was made 3 weeks plus 2 days later–using the high dosage D3 and k2mk7. Massive improvement. I had no idea how much my life was about to change…. Continue reading “Gratitude Heals the Mind (BLOG #9)”
I want you to read this. I know it’s going to be too long. But I need to tell this story. It’s about my journey with this disease called psoriasis. Continue reading “My Journey with Psoriasis (BLOG #8)”
Talk about the week of a thousand cuts! I have been in truck hell. A couple of weeks ago I bought a new battery (at great expense). But the truck was still slow to start. My neighbour (who knows a lot about trucks) said it was the alternator. So I ordered one.
Wrong. It wasn’t the alternator, Continue reading “Yikes! Life Follows the Blog (BLOG #6)”
It’s almost impossible to live in this world and not suffer from some degree of stress. But if you add psoriasis to the mix, stress can get out of control.
My experience in the past was to always have a low level of stress running around inside my head–mostly based on the fear that my skin was going to get worse (which it regularly did). And when it got worse my stress shot through the roof. Continue reading “Stress & Psoriasis–Meditation (BLOG #5)”

J’s ‘Becoming Psoriasis Free’ Diary Notes
October 2018: I feel real angry that I took a drug that caused this psoriasis flare. And it was a doctor that prescribed it.
I feel helpless. I’m depressed and suffer from anxiety. But I also have a wonderful husband, Tim, who supports me. And a team of co-workers educated in human services who understand what I’m going through. They look at my arms and legs and can see the changes from week to week.
They cheer me on and continue to support me. I couldn’t do this without them or Tim.
During this journey I cried and asked Tim to shoot me. His response was Continue reading “J’s AMAZING DIARY OF HEALING”
I hope that you will take the time to read this VERY IMPORTANT LETTER. It holds information both physical and emotional (spiritual?)—about the battle I’ve been going through the past two months.
As you know, I fell off the wagon during the celebration of my 70th birthday—eating dairy, drinking too much alcohol—basically telling myself my skin was doing great—why not have a good time?—psoriasis be damned.
Well, the price was higher than I thought it was going to be.
By early April I noticed that some spots were appearing—especially on Continue reading “It Came BACK… why and what I did about it…”
